I think he is refering to when the next season start. He / I asume that the iLvl cap will be raised, meaning heroic will will suddenly be better than 496/512 if the cap is indeed raised to 522 or so. We can only asume though here.
they tweeted about it already, the ilvl cap will gradually increase as people get new pvp gear, until it lands at a level appropriate for full pvp gear next season
Also, if the system works like challenge modes, then sockets + high iLvl will still matter. Hit/Expertise is never downscaled, meaning you can reforge it away from PvP pieces, and socket bonuses + sockets will be worth more. But again, we'll have to see.
hit is not downscaled, but if you reforge out of hit then the reforged stat is downscaled. also items with extra socket bonuses have less base strength/agility/intellect to compensate so its not as big a difference
I don't think people said they wanted to roll the best class, most of them probably would just like to be able to play their alts, without having to spend months of gearing up. Even with the new catch up system, it will take forever to cap if you start late. Imagine being down 40.000 health and a ton of stats, then you go ahead and try to cap your new "catch up" cap as a Ret Paladin or so.
But atleast it is something! I would just like an easier way to play my alts.
i think what people say they want and what people actually want are two very different things
but regardless, it seems a bit retarded to get full up to date gear on one character over a period of time, and then just because you got that you can then get full gear instantly on all your other lvl 90 characters just by botting honor for a day. also seems kinda obvious why they don't want to make it that stupidly easy to get full gear

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap
if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.
Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper
I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world
